campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha

know what dixicrast did to intimidate. they were known as jim crow. what we have going on in the 21st century in 2012 is jim crow's cousin, james crow esquire. this is what people need to know. they have planned this for months. this has been going on for months under the radar. it's now out in the open. two, i suspect that t they'veee scott and others will probably keep finding out and we're lucky to find it out just a few days before the election. >> absolutely. >> and finally, reverend sharpton, i will say this again. this is where you tell people, get out of my face because, remember, none of these people have legal authority. they have no legal authority to stop you from voting and that's what you've got to remember. just simply tell them to get the you know what out of my face and go in there and vote. >> now, we started seeing this in wisconsin, now iowa and elsewhere. scott, some liberal bloggers have suggested that project orca could lead in this sophisticated apparatus that we're talking about to voter suppression. give you an example. one blogger, nate samuel downs, quote,
white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio, frankly, at the end of the day we can talk back and forth about different demographics. the presiden
rules is convinced they are indispensible to democracy. his name is jim bopp. he's best known as the father of citizens united. he's been a leading force in the restructuring of campaign finance law. i caught up with him at his office in terre haute, indiana, and he told me why he believes secrecy is actually good for the political process. >> for people to participate in our democracy, citizens, they have to be able to talk about issues. and it's very important that that be protected, and the first amendment intended that that be protected. if they can't talk about issues because they're afraid that the federal election commission is going to investigate them or they're going to be complained about, or they're going to have to file a report, or they're going to have to do this and do that, then they are driven out of our democracy. >> ryssdal: bopp says disclosure laws keep people from participating in politics. >> anonymity for citizens is a very important concept because people are very reticent to contribute to overtly political entities. associating yourself with politica

here on the trail, fred. >> all right, thank you so much from milwaukee, wisconsin. and jim acosta is with the romney campaign, which is getting ready for a rally in dubuque, iowa, after a morning stop in new hampshire. we'll have a report from jim in just a few minutes. >>> now let's get the latest on recovery. five days after superstorm sandy, new york governor andrew cuomo said temporary fuel trucks will be deployed around the new york city area to alleviate the gas shortages. drivers will be able to fill up directly from the tankers. new yorkers can also get around the city a little easier now as well. >> 80% of the subway service has been restored. that is under literally, under one week, 80% of the subway service has been restored from what was horrendous damage. >> across the river in new jersey, there is gas rationing in 12 counties in an effort to cut don on wait times there. people have been waiting there in long lines for hours to gas up cars and get fuel for their generators. >> our jim clancy is in long beach, new jersey, which is on the jersey shore. it's very windy,
democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
democratic businessman and hotel owner jim graves. he is convinced bachmann's failed presidential run is helping him. >> i definitely think people feel left out here. she hasn't been in the district or on the floor in congress. she just hasn't been representing the people. she hasn't been a voice for the people. >> reporter: a run that didn't sit well with some of her constituents. >> i think it hurt her because she really wasn't doing anything for the voters in her district. >> i think that was a waste of time and she wasn't maybe doing her job and i was paying for that? sure. i do. >> reporter: bachmann admits there's been fallout but remains confident. do you think your presidential run hurt you or helped you in the district? >> oh, i think that it -- i think there's both. i think there's a lot of advantages that came from it and i'm now applying that to the run this time and all of the polling numbers look very positive and people appreciate the work that i've done for the district so we're all happy. >> reporter: bachmann's fame makes her a prolific fundraiser and she is spending
counting system we have in america. we are back to jim crow. not jim crow, it stopped or james crow systems analyst. that is how it is working. that is the new gimmick we are trying, that is happening and that is where the monies being spent and that's what makes the data trust dangerous. if they want to use it to pick out people who bowl and say bowlers made paul ryan fine but what if you are doing is mailing letters to soldiers on active duty with the game of challenging them, that is a crime according to bobby kennedy. and i have to say, while al gore grabbed his ankles in 2000 after he read, personally read my story that was breaking in england. this was before the supreme court ruled that thousands of like people were banished from the voter rolls in florida and after john kerry med -- read my book armed madhouse, he said that is why they lost the election and one of the last bills he introduced to make the stuck illegal on its face. right now you have to prove that it's racially biased. they are going after old jewish ladies and going after native americans. one of their big targets i

rally in new hampshire, and now he is headed the iowa. our national political correspondent jim acosta was there in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: mitt romney has kicked off his swing state blitz in this final weekend of the presidential campaign starting the day in new hampshire and then heading next to iowa and colorado. we're hearing the gop nominee touch on some themes that he's been bringing up quite a bit in the last couple of days, saying he is the candidate of what he calls real change. he's also going through his five-point economic plan to get the country back on track, talking about ideas like cutting the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised
's also back in full campaign mode. he's not pulling any punches. his new line of attack, jim acosta will have that next. dad vo: ok, time for bed, kiddo. lights out. ♪ (sirens) (train horn) ♪ vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> mitt romney is himself back in full campaign mode today in virginia. here's cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta. >> reporter: wolf, the truce is over. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, mitt romney has shifted back into campaign mode. and the gop candidate has unleashed some new eye opening lines of attack. mitt romney turned battleground virginia into a battlefield ending a two-daybreak from the campaign's fireworks with some new verbal cannon shots aimed at winning the last five days of the race. >> i know that the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. but our chant is this. five more days. five more days is our chant. >> reporter: romney then mocked president obama for saying he m
in manhattan by the end of today in parts of new jersey restoring power is taking a bit longer. news 4's jim rosenthal reports from essex falls, new jersey. >> 31 degrees outside. we're freezing. we have no heat. >> reporter: desperate pleas from the powerless in essex county. residents see utility trucks and beg for relief. >> is it tough on you guys? >> yeah. we're doing our best. there's a lot of damage. >> reporter: their best means navigating around a maze of massive downed trees, 100 of them in essex fells alone slowing restoration to the customers without power in a state with about 1.5 million still in the dark at last count. >> i looked outside and it was, felt like christmas. somebody delivering new telephone poles. >> reporter: more help is on the way after governor christie urged the utilities to speed up restoration. thousands of crews from other states are now descending on the region, the first of 1500 from virginia dominion set out from national harbor in maryland, the largest out of state deployment ever mobilized by that company. even with the extra help it's messes like th
website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going
-- >> jim clancy is also with cnn. jim is in that area right now. jim, is there a sense that the danger has passed? >> reporter: there's a sense that they faced down the destruction that has been caused. they've now seen those images that you showed, you saw the faces of those evacuees, what they've been through. there are still dangers looming out there, a long way to go. the gas lines you were talking about are still a challenge in some areas. some residents challenging why they haven't been cut off much earlier. and there's hopes that that can be done today. not as easy as it sounds. gaining access to where they can cut off these lines still will leave some of those lines pressurized. there's still a potential threat there. of course, before they can reenergize any of the electric lines in some of these communities, they have to ensure that job is done, carol. otherwise, it could ignite new fires. there's one of the major risks that remains. there are still some people that are holding out, some elderly with their pets, but they're about to give it up. there's no electricity. there's no
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race in this state is going to come down to independents. whoever wins independents in the words of this romney advisor, that candidate is going to win ohio. now, there's a little bit of spin in that because if you look at recent polling like an abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the
, some subway stations from maine under water. the weather channel's jim canner to joins me from outside one of those submerged subway stage. how is it looking in new york? >> yeah, andrea. this is awful. this is the south berry subway station here. you get off the staten island ferry and some would walk through here and take the train uptown or as far as the bronx if you so choose. the problem is there's 30 to 40 feet of what we call brackish water had in there, which is kind of a mixture of fresh water and seawater and diesel fuel. i was down there earlier, we took some picks down there, and i'm telling you, after about 30 or 40 seconds your eyes are burning, your nostrils are burning. you can't breathe down there. it is awful. so the army corps of engineers is here and hoping to pump this out and it's going to take a couple days. i mean 30 to 40 feet deep and it goes all the way up to the next station. all right. this is the worst station that we understand here in lower part of manhattan in terms of water infiltration. we talked about the tunnels that are still infiltrated, midtown,
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.
